NO ROOM FOR THE MOON (photomorph) & NO ROOM (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila


why do I see your face
in everyone’s? hear your voice, a low
grumble in my gut

I’m not fool enough
to think you’re anything more than
symbolic language:
my own insistence on self-attention
breaking through layers of denial

yes, sadly, I’ve long
suspected we are very much alike –
not. that. likable.
and it’s puzzled me ‘til I just now faced up
to your self-involved stare in the mirror:

a narcissist’s love leaves no room for any other

[a dreamku, two tanka, and a one-liner on a dream of 1-17-20. This experience of “seeing” and “hearing” someone everywhere in my waking life, happens to me occasionally. The last time was several years ago (with a different relative that time), as it has done once in a while since I was 12 years old. The person I kept “seeing” that first time was – oddly enough – a complete stranger. All subsequent “visitors” have been relatives. BTW, I don’t always manage to understand the “reason” for the “visits.” I.e., it’s rare to find so much (difficult to take in) psychological meaning in one. In fact, I usually just note the phenomenon and maybe have an imaginary conversation or two with the person.

PLEASE NOTE: in most browsers you can click on the above image for a larger version. Also, the photo accompanying a post is not necessarily meant to illustrate it, but to reflect some small, even slant or contrasting aspect of the verse, similar to Japanese haiga (illustrated haiku).

There are many other sorts of posts on this blog. I indicate which are about or influenced by dreams. Some non dream focused posts are book reviews, "regular" poems (some by other writers), scifaiku, writing exercises, Tarot haiku, photos, haiga, and so on. However, most of those are in much older posts. There's a listing by month going back to early 2006, at the end of the sidebar.

until next time, keep dreaming,
